In May 2004, Pakistan Tobacco Company launched its SAP implementation project to replace the CS/3 system. The objective of this initiative was to conform to British American Tobacco’s global technology standard and to align PTC’s business processes with those of other countries in the region.
Before taking the plunge, for local implementation support PTC contacted a number of professional services firms and SAP service providers. After a rigorous evaluation and selection process, they decided to engage SHMA. The selection criterion that weighed heavily in SHMA’s favor is the functional knowledge and business process expertise of our resources. PTC teamed up SHMA’s consultants with BAT’s SAP resources from its Global Services Division from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Management targeted January 2005 to go-live on SAP. This appeared to be a daunting and ambitious target to achieve. No other company in Pakistan, national or multinational, had done what PTC set out to do within this short time span. However, the “can-do” and positive attitude of the project team and the support from PTC’s project management made the impossible possible. SAP is now operational at PTC’s head office, two factories, four regional offices, and 14 warehouses across Pakistan. Data is captured at the source and once. Business rules, access rights and privileges, data validation guidelines are built into the system.
Among the significant contributions SHMA consultants made on the project include, rationalization of the chart of accounts and reports; configuration and implementation of the Distribution Resource Planning functionality, which is not available in standard SAP; and programming of a number of non-standard SAP reports, to name a few.
On 21 March 2005, in a glittering ceremony to mark successful closure of the implementation phase, Mr. Jeremy Pike, Chief Executive of PTC recognized SHMA’s effort and awarded a commemorative plaque. Following successful closure of the implementation phase, PTC has now engaged SHMA for post-implementation support.
